Solidworks Flow Simulation - Mesh Density

Question asked by Justin Sadler on Aug 24, 2019

If the mesh generation is taking several hours and looks to be restarting as I check on it, is this a early sign that mesh or geometry of model should be re-examined?  Everything set to default mesh settings, no local mesh refinement yet.  Outlet at standard pressure with inlet at a volume flow rate.  If you have too large a mesh would this happen?  The only geometry issue I noticed was a tangent line contact in the check geometry results, but beside line item the solver stated resolved.  If the solver says resolved for issue, do I necessary have to fix it?
